ULiège, UBx, UPPA and EHU procure language courses for foreign students. These courses are free in UBx, UPPA and EHU (covered by ECT Consortium and Master & Doctoral School) and at low cost in ULiège (courses can be free if the students attend the classes on a regular basis and take the exam at the end of the course). For instance, at EHU all the ECT+ students in either S2 or S3 will follow Spanish courses specially designed for them during the Saturdays (16 w, 4 h/w) in Plentzia Marine station (PiE-UPV/EHU). In addition, ECT Consortium facilitates in all partners contacts between students and local students/associations to exchange Basque, Portuguese, Norwegian and French (or other languages) knowledge in a multi-ethnical atmosphere during weekends through sports, culinary and cultural activities.
